In a bedroom far, far away, one lucky kid gets to sleep in the coolest Star Wars-themed bed around.
The "Millennium Falcon Cockpit" bed was created by Peter McGowan of PlainJoe Studios, who built the amazing contraption for his son. McGowan told The Huffington Post that it was the bed he always wanted as a kid. Over the course of three months (and with the help of many friends, including a Disney artist and automotive engineer,) the bed slowly came to life. A few days ago, McGowan's brother uploaded a finished shot of the bed on Imgur:
Over a year ago I posted a photo of my nephew's Star Wars room while it was in the process of being built. Here is the final product. #plainjoe #plainjoestudios
McGowan's other brother, Redditor isayx3, first submitted a picture of the bed about a year ago, saying it cost about $250 dollars to make with the help of some "found materials." McGowan told The Huffington Post that making the bed cost less because he has a workshop. He also integrated cheaper items into the structure like a trashcan for the engine and Ikea ice cube trays.
Until we can find a few of our own talented friends to build a bed for us, we'll have to dream about this $14,300 "Deepspace Defender Spaceship Bed."
